Fire-Eater Mexican Corn

This is my take on grilled Mexican corn. Normally, you season the corn-on-the-cob with cayenne pepper, but I prefer something with a little more flavor (but still have some heat). Steven Raichlen’s rub is the perfect mix for this Fire-Eater Mexican corn (and wings, and steak, and just about everything you make!). The rub adds … Continue reading “Fire-Eater Mexican Corn”

Fire-Eater Chicken Enchilada Soup

Yowsa. Or, rather, olé! This fire-eater chicken enchilada soup is some mighty good (and kickin’) soup. As unbelievable as it was, it was even better the second day. This started out as a copycat of Chili’s enchilada soup, but it quickly took several turns towards even greater… greatness. The flavor is fantastic, definitely southwestern. We … Continue reading “Fire-Eater Chicken Enchilada Soup”

Fire-Eater Chicken Mac-and-Cheese

I made a big ole batch of fire-eater chicken the other day. It has a really nice kick to it. Besides sandwiches and other great uses for the chicken, I made this insanely good fire-eater chicken mac-and-cheese. It’s based on a Buffalo chicken mac-and-cheese recipe, so you know that it’s great. And you don’t have … Continue reading “Fire-Eater Chicken Mac-and-Cheese”

Fire-Eater Roasted Split Chicken Breasts on the Char-Broil Big Easy

After enjoying (ok, devouring) a batch of fire-eater chicken wings the other day, I just had to find another use for Steven Raichlen’s fantastic fire-eater rub. The rub has a tremendous kick and flavor thanks to celery seed and a few other things. So, I decided I’d fire up my Char-Broil Big Easy and roast … Continue reading “Fire-Eater Roasted Split Chicken Breasts on the Char-Broil Big Easy”

Fire-Eater Rub and Seasoning

Fire-eater rub and seasoning is by far my favorite kicked-up rub and all-purpose seasoning. It has the wonderful flavor of celery seed. I am a little heavy-handed with the celery seed. Don’t be afraid to cut back on it a bit if you’re not quite the celery seed enthusiast that I am. And it has … Continue reading “Fire-Eater Rub and Seasoning”

Fire-Eater Chicken Wings on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I bought a Char-Broil The Big Easy TRU-Infrared Oil-less Turkey Fryer a while back. It is one of my favorite “grills” by far. It doesn’t get any easier – marinate/brine/rub/whatever meat you wish to cook and put it into the cooker. Turkeys and chickens take about 15 minutes per pound. A family pack of wings … Continue reading “Fire-Eater Chicken Wings on the Char-Broil Big Easy”

Ranch Saltines

After making a sleeve of Fire-Eater saltines the other day, I had to keep trying other flavors. I mean, there’s good and then there’s crazy good. These Ranch saltines are definitely crazy good. Great Ranch flavor on a crunchy yummy cracker. That’s all you’ll need, trust me. Yes, you could slather a bit of cream … Continue reading “Ranch Saltines”

Rotisserie Chicken Wings Version 2.0

I recently posted my very successful chicken wing cookout using a Napoleon basket on my Weber S670 gas grill. I was very happy with the results. But, I did notice that I lost a little bit of my wing seasoning as the wings went around and around, bouncing from one side of the basket to … Continue reading “Rotisserie Chicken Wings Version 2.0”

Crispy Convection Oven Wings

Most of the time I make wings either on a charcoal grill using the Vortex insert, on my Char-Broil Big Easy, or I deep fry them. But sometimes none of those options are available. That’s when I ‘fire up’ my convection oven. And you know, the wings are actually pretty darned good! Nothing will ever … Continue reading “Crispy Convection Oven Wings”

Nacho Cheddar Saltines

My addiction to flavored saltine crackers is getting worse. It all started a few weeks ago when I made a batch of Fire-Eater saltines. They were packed with heat and flavor. They disappeared in no time at all. I’ve since made several other flavors, all of them great. But these nacho cheddar saltines aren’t great. … Continue reading “Nacho Cheddar Saltines”
